The activity which was aimed at contributing to the enhancement of the participants’ knowledge in agriculture technologies and community development was attended by 34 faculty researchers/scientists from five universities in Thailand, and their counterparts from CLSU.

Seven research papers were presented/discussed by Thai professors while three papers were discussed by CLSU and Philippine Carabao Center researchers/scientists. The paper presentations were held at the CAS Little Theater. CLSU students also attended the seminar.

The conference was made possible through the collaborative efforts of King Mongkut Institute of Technology and Maejo University (Thailand) and Central Luzon State University.

The second day of the conference (November 28) gave the Thai group the chance to visit a number of projects within the university. They also visited other research institutions within the Science City of Munoz, to wit; Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PhilMech), Philippine Carabao Center (PCC), and Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice).
